I had been thinking about this flavor combination since many days. Initially, I was in the mood to make a cake and fill it with rose cream. But, before I could experiment I thought of trying it in small quantities. I had this perfect opportunity last week when I was home alone and wanted to eat something for breakfast but turned out I made it to lunch. I had prepared some apricot pistachio frangipane tart and had some leftover pistachio frangipane so what is the best use of it then try making pancakes. I used the pistachios we bought from our Greece trip. Oh , I tell you they turned out so good. I felt so happy and content. And, I had perfect lunch of pancakes. Yes, lunch. You can have them for dinner as well.
